Pulled pork and smoked bacon sandwiches


Made in the slow cooker these pulled pork sandwiches are something special. I cooked the meat in the slow cooker, together with smoked bacon and loads of spices and sauces. I choose to serve only with purple cabbage and carrots coleslaw so the real taste of the meat and juices is the star of the dish.
